The first room called “From the particle to Universe” includes scientific topics together with particular content in cooperation with CERN consultants (the European Organization for Nuclear Research). CERN, which is located on the border between France and Switzerland, was found in 1954, being the largest laboratory of “Particle Physics”. Besides, this site has been the workplace of approximately 12,000 scientists from all over the world, including 11 Vietnamese ones as members up to the year 2017.
Within the room, a vast of wonders ranging from one tiny world of basic particle to another enormous part of Universe is likely to be worthwhile surprises towards all visitors. Then, you will have a chance to thoroughly understand how and what scientists at CERN are searching for or, moreover, the History of Big Bang to constitute the Universe through means of visual aids as games, modules, …
OmniGlobe: a visually spherical display
A wide range of lessons about Geography, Meteorology and Environment is likely to become simple as well as attractive when being performed over the “spherical” screen of OmniGlobe with a diameter of 1.5 meters.
Not to mention, a compelling demonstration of Planets’ surface belong to Solar System and some satellites around them absolutely is the worth expectation.
Last but not least, a special show “Future of Earth” would be performed by staff of Center through this stunning display.
We have approximately 10 “fun puzzle games” about Math without any distinguishing from ages in order to provoke the creativity of participants within this space. It ranges from the demonstration of Pythagoras theorem to various puzzle games which seem to be easy at first but … challenging eventually.
This is a special equipment which simulates and provides visitors with the vividly visual approach towards a popular phenomenon of weather on Earth.
Participants are highly interested in experiencing together with understanding partly about this phenomenon’s effects through being surrounded by a level-12 storm.
Room 5 namely “From playing to learning” is ideally for children of secondary school and over who has a basic ground of Science knowledge; from that, they can play many games or conduct simple experiments by themselves following reading posters of instruction.
Within the space of room, visitors have a chance to freely explore more 20 scientific models as their own interest. Most of them were made at ExploraScience with the support of well-experienced professors. Besides, through approaching each of experiment or game here, basic Science concepts of Physics, Mathematics or Biology and their practical application are expected to convey an intelligible significance to all people.
An extremely engaging show of electric spark generated from Tesla Coil 500kV absolutely makes you surprised by the fact that the high-frequency spark can turn on a fluorescent tube in 3-meter distance, demonstrating principle of wireless energy transfer (WET). Last but not least, is it possible that this Tesla’s machine has an ability to play a couple of familiar melodies?
One of the most effective ways that scientists have been conducting the research into tiny particles is to let them collide each other at an extremely high speed. This game works by the simulation of operating process of an enormous accelerator at CERN: two players as two accelerators will shoot the “Proton” balls in order to make the collision. Then, if speed of balls is enough at the center of “playing ground”, newborn particles are what you can see, even the Particle of God – Higgs.
Electricity and static electricity
A special show about electricity: it is interesting and easy to generate the electricity; however, using it so as to render a magic absolutely leads to more happiness for everyone (static-electricity motor, Wimshurst machine, …)
A scientific experience of making rocket following principle III Newton.
